I was the stepdaughter of Tom for a very short time, but will always remember him in the most loving way. He took me to gymnastics, cheerleading and all the wonderful things for a teenage girl. I love him always and hope he had a wonderful life.
Debbie & Family,
My sincere condolences on your loss. I just foundout last evening. I was able to work with Dennis at ACS here and there. He was an intelligent, kind, thoughtful, fun-loving person with much love for his family as well as fellow humans. He always helped and brightened other people's day regardless of his circumstances. I was happy to have known him.
My sons Neil and Max attended ACS and were always pleased to have Mr. Murphy as a sub. Fond memories of a really great teacher and sadness to hear of his passing.
Laura, I am so sorry to hear of your father's passing. I am thinking of you and your family during this difficult time. Praying for you and your family. Love- Carolyn (Kelly) Buchta
From an old Simonton Lake friend....my thoughts and prayers are with you his beloved family; my memories go back to the days at the lake and the wonderful times past; rest in peace dear friend.
Debbie & family, My heart goes out to you all to miss such a wonderful man. Dennis has been pleasure to work with at LT; he was one of the "go-to" substitutes who loved to work, in any capacity, but was exceptional when he worked with our special ed students. His warm smile, happy spirit and great energy will be missed at our school. I will certainly miss his great enthusiasm & eagerness to sub, but also the genuinely kind man I had the pleasure to meet.
The teachers and staff at Lyons Township high school are saddened by the death of Mr. Murphy. he was always so kind and generous to our students especially our students with disabilities. We are so sorry for the loss.

Having worked with Dennis at Commonwealth Edison and also being a neighbor at the Fairway Club I appreciate the warm and wonderful person he was. He will be missed.

Sorry to hear about Dennis. He will be missed by his friends at the Fairway Club. He did so much for us and did not ask for anything in return.
Kristen, I only met your dad once in Fla. I found him to be a very nice man, gracious and interesting to talk to. I'm so very sorry for your loss. May God and the memories of your father bring you solace at this very very sad and difficult time. -Ed Chakmakian
Mrs. Murphy, Kristin & Laura and family,
There are no words to describe this kind of loss. I hope that being surrounded by friends and family offers you some small comfort in these difficult days. I will always have great memories of your dad's smile, his enthusiastic spirit, and kind nature! I look forward to celebrating his life with you in the coming days.
